Dear Parents/Carers,

We are regularly reviewing our approach to keeping our children safe when online; we would appreciate your feedback so that we can continue to ensure we are focusing our resources in the right areas.

Below is a link to an online survey which we would be very grateful if you could find the time to complete.  (If you would rather complete this by hand, there is also a paper copy of this survey, available from the school office.)

If you wanted to come in for a confidential chat around keeping our children safe online, please ask to speak to Danielle or Debbie (our PFSA’s).

Kind Regards

Pre-School, Breakfast and Tea Time Club electrical supply…..

Posted:

As you may be aware, the electrical supply to Pre-School and the Breakfast/Tea Time club buildings was lost. We have managed to get a temporary supply run in from the Children’s Centre building. Unfortunately it will take a while longer for the supply to be fully restored. This means that both the Breakfast and Tea Time clubs will continue being held in the main building. Breakfast club will always be in the Hall but due to other events Tea Time club will be in different rooms –signs will be put out in school directing you to where the club is being held.

 I am sorry for any inconvenience and we all hope that normal service will be resumed soon!

FoBS fundraising

Posted:

As you may recall, our focus this term has been to raise funds to further extend our playground equipment.

We also raised funds for Children in Need and I’m delighted to tell you that we raised £342.

Our wonderful FoBS committee organised the Lands End to John O’Groats sponsored walk and to date this has raised £1,661.25.  Please send in any further sponsor money asap! It is hoped that Phase One of this project will start in the next couple of weeks.

The Discos raised £549.70 which all makes this a very successful term.  Thank you to the FoBS committee and very well done!

The Christmas Decoration competition – these need to be returned to school by Thursday 8 December so that they can be judged on Friday.

The tea towels are due to be delivered to school next Monday so these should be sent home at the beginning of next week.

FoBS would like to thank all the volunteers who helped with the recent disco and wish everyone a Happy Christmas.
